Hello. If this light is coming on, then the computer is detecting a transmission issue. I always start by checking the fluid. If it is low then this will occur. If the fluid level is fine then the condition needs to be looked at. If the fluid is really dark or smells burnt, then this will occur. If the fluid is fine, then the computer will need to be scanned for codes to see what is coming up. If the transmission itself seems to be fine then it may be a failure in the transmission control module. I would recommend taking this to the dealer or having a transmission specialist look at it. If you need to have the limping symptom inspected, a certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car's location to diagnose the issue and guide you through repairs.

Q: Car is losing power and shaking

Hello. Your intuition is correct. Your vibration is caused by a failing "flex disk", a large rubber and steel "doughnut" which connects the transmission and driveshaft, and acts as a u-joint to allow flexing as the engine and transmission move...
